The best part of a holiday to Baie du Tombeau is the pristine beach which is gently washed by the waters of the Indian Ocean, a perfect way to spend your days is just to walk along the sand with the warm water wash over your feet. Don’t let the beautiful beach and surroundings fool you though, Baie du Tombeau translates as Tomb Bay and this spectacular yet hazardous coastline has a history of claiming more than its fair share of shipwrecks.
For those wanting a more lively time on a Baie du Tombeau holiday, then the capital of Mauritius is only a few minutes drive south along the coast road and offers a great selection of cafés and shops. Alternatively the resort of Grand Baie is little over 20 minutes away from Baie du Tombeau and is a much more developed holiday resort offering a variety of nightclubs, bars and other entertainments.
